In unexpected news this morning, Massimo Giorgetti has left his position as creative director of Pucci, a job he held for two years.
“This experience with Emilio Pucci, one of the most representative and historic brands in fashion was an inspiring journey, which has also contributed to my professional growth,” Giorgetti said. “Today my brand needs more and more attention and all my energy. I would like to thank Laudomia Pucci, the LVMH Group, Mauro Grimaldi, and all the Emilio Pucci team for supporting me in this beautiful adventure.”
Giorgetti’s last collection for the house, Fall 2017, featured bold colors and all new prints. But even then, FU’s William Buckley noted that the designer’s own brand, MSGM, was taking off.
The departure from Pucci was amicable, with Mauro Grimaldi (Pucci’s CEO) thanking him for his time at the brand. As of yet, no replacement has been announced.
